Help Needed!!!

With planning now under way for our Summer Fayre (Saturday 16th July, 1 - 3pm) we are in desperate need of helpers.

Our Summer Fayre will only be a success if we can find enough people willing to help out and lend a hand either on the day or in the run up to the fayre.

We need volunteers to ask local businesses for raffle prizes and display posters, we need helpers to help set up and clear away on the day, people to man the stalls, to bake cakes.....if you can help in any way please let Jayne know as soon as possible.

Fundraisers, like the Summer Fayre, are vital to the continued success of our preschool so please help us to help you and your children.
